The Corset Effect – tips and trick to wearing the lace-up shoe

0

You can find almost any item of clothing with corset details these days. If you are interested in the look but aren’t ready to dive in, you can dip your toes in the water by investing in accessories and shoes that draw inspiration from the style.

The trick is finding the footwear that compliments your own individual look and of course there are some rules to follow when wearing the corset style so we don’t end up looking a trussed up Christmas turkey.

Rule #1 – Don’t top to toe it. Choose one piece and work with that.

Rule #2 – Don’t tie too tight. The lacing needs to be firm enough to stay in place, but not so tight you start to resemble a roll of deli meat

Rule #3 – With your shoes, try placing the bow at the back. This will show off the shape of your ankle and will also negate the dreaded ‘cankle’ which is the last thing any of us want.

Rule #4 – Pick a style that suits you.

Don’t forget, this is a trend to have fun with. Here are some of our favourite lace up options at FSW Shoes.

Velvet – The Most Luxurious Trend of 2017

0

For those of us at a certain age where the mere thought of velvet having made a return to fashion has the ability to send a shiver of dread down our spines. Images of looking like a back-up dancer in an ABBA video or an extra from an Austin Powers film can’t help but dance through our heads.

 However the sumptuous lushness of the material can add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. The trick to wearing velvet and not looking like a member of the Brady Bunch is…. just keep it simple. What is the easiest way to keep it simple I hear your ask. Just add a splash luxury with your shoes.

 Velvet is such a fabulously luxe material where a little goes a long way. You don’t have to dress from head to toe and you don’t have to go with the bold colours that are sashaying down the catwalk. You can keep it classy and elegant with basic black and greys.

Regie and Gael by Lipstick certainty add a touch of class to any outfit. The block heel makes them extremely comfortable and the ankle tie means you have stability all day long while also being flattering on any foot.

 For those of us who love to be a little more daring, try an over the knee boot (which is another major trend of the season). Skarlett by Lipstik and Ambrose by Therapy will definitely put the luxe factor into an outfit whilst adding a stamp of edginess.

 So for this season velvet is not just for the Kylie Jenners or the Gigi Hadids of the world. Banish the thought of Austin Powers whispering “yeah baby” in your ear and embrace the majestic opulence that is velvet.

Quick tip: caring for velvet. To keep your shoes looking fab you will need to give them a quick spray of Water and Stain Repellent every 4 or 5 wears.

AW16 Sole Ideas for Mum.jpg

Does your mum love shoes as much as we do? Probably!  Here are different shoe styles for your mum to fit into.

BOHO-CHIC STYLE

Boho-chic is versatile and not just for the young hipsters. This AW16 season, mix your wardrobe with a flowered or tassled shirt, with pair of denim jeans and a brown pair of  Hawley Brown by Therapy, also comes in a camel colour. This season we have different shades of brown boots that will help you mix and match your style.

CASUAL STYLE

The style “casual” is so loosely used these days. For mums who likes to dress casually at work or anywhere without feeling left behind of trendy, a solution is an easy pair of flats or slip on shoes. We chose Jasper Tan by Bare Traps because it’s versatile and it’s a smart slip shoe that’s easy to wear with a small heel and a perforated design which can be worn with a pair of jeans or skirt- it’s the smart casual look.

CLASSIC STYLE – Heel

Nothing beats a pair of black heels- it’s your classic go-to-shoe, every gal should have one. Naomi Black by Bare Traps has a comfortable size heel that provides just the right comfort and the shiny patent on the front and back gives a new overhaul on the classic black. This can be worn as part of your office wear wardrobe or out for a nice dinner date with a dress or skirt.

You could wear so many outfits with these shoes and the size of the heel is just right, not too high and not too low – 7.5 cm.
